issue from the panama canal treaties to the energy legislation where byrd worked tirelessly on it to get it done without a filibuster. he had the sense that the senate leader should have a special relationship with the president and that is the way the system was supposed to work. of course, the most important in for the senate leader is to make the senate work. byrd knew the senate rules better than any person that ever lived. he lived in dealing with the notion of the fear of a paralyzed senate. he wanted to think that the rules worked, but he knew that in fact jim allen of alabama had cracked the code. he had figured out how to have this filibuster so the senate could be tied up in paralyzed. robert byrd like to think you have to be an expert to do this, but it turned out you do not need to be an expert at all. a couple of senators did not know the rules and they tied the senate up. byrd struggled with the notion of how to keep the unique character of the senate without having a paralyzed? in that regard, he championed rules change. he got some done in 1979. he knew that the senate ru

[applause] >> our next speaker is dr. lloyd johnson who is the distinguished senior research scientist at the university of michigan social research and the principal investigator of the monitoring the future studies since its inception in 1975, which is an amazing contribution he has provided to understand the trends in the drug use. he served as an adviser to the white house, congress, and many international bodies and has conducted research in a wide variety of issues including the use of alcohol, tobacco and various illicit drugs.

of energy. as the sun comes up, it starts to fade away. then we will dry things out. >>> we are watching for the river to crest there, the russian river in guernville expected to crest at 10:00 just below flood stage at almost 31 feet. we've had a lot of rainfall. still more to come as the storm system is expected to bear down on the bay area. traveling around the state, temperatures running on the mild side; but the clouds will gather once again late in the day. here they come. they'll slide on through. by tomorrow we're talking about a chance of rain developing. not a real pig soaker. temperatures in the 50s outside. in the next couple of days, the return of rainfall. maybe some showers on wednesday, possibly leftover showers into thursday as well. back to you. >>> thanks. 6:19 right now. for decades nor rad had the inside scoop on tracking santa's journey from the north pole across the globe. he's a busy guy. >> i know. what is it? 980 million gifts delivered so far? that's the latest tally. this year a test giant is getting in on the action, too. karen kaifa shows us the multiple way
of energy will come up and over the area during the late night hours and early tomorrow and bring us a period of snow probably transitioning to rain for parts of the area. there are still some question marks about the storm system. there will be two areas of low pressure and how quickly the area of low pressure that is a little farther south and east of us develops will determine exactly how long we see snow around here and how quickly we make the transition over it a little rain. winter weather advisory has been issued across the northern tier of maryland and west virginia. the weather service indicates it will likely include some more counties in this as we get closer to the event. right now, you are most likely to get into that criteria later today. this is a computer simulation of how much snow we might be getting tomorrow and there are some indications that parts of the area that haven't seen a whole lot yet might get at least some light accumulations. as we get south and east of washington, you might get up to about an inch of snow. around the immediate 59 corridor, maybe an in
lightbulbs. the cfl bulb and l.e.d. bulb is replacing them. the idea is to reduce energy use by 75%. >> l.e.d.'s, the biggest claim to fame is that they last a really long time. we're talking about 25,000 to 50,000 hours. and to put that in perspective, if you put a lightbulb in your child's nursery, you probably wouldn't have to change it until junior was ready to go to college. >> the 100-watt bulbs have been phased out. the 60- and 40-watt versions will disappear later. >>> speaking of green initiatives, this is a way to get rid of a real christmas tree. in rhode island, a petting zoo is letting the animals chow down on them. the simons farm has 50 goats and they into pine, apparently. the next thing the farm crew knew, the cows and sheep were sharing the feast. >> everyone hates to like, you know, they have their live tree. what do i do with it when it's done? i hate to throw it away. there is a good alternative. >> the farmhands say it's great timing because the animals have eaten all of the leaves off of the trees and the grass in the area, so there was not much left for them to mon
and if the obama plan can pass the senate, but there's a bit of optimism, a bit of energy, the body language finally looks a bit more positive. back to you. >> steve, with that improvement body language and the prospects that maybe something will happened, doesn't the fact remain that representative boehner does not seem to have control of the republicans in the house, a group of them standing firm, no taxes -- on a no tax increase on anybody. >> that's right, which is why boehner pulled the plug, jim, you'll recall, on that vote, which was supposed to be a show vote to put the pressure on the president to draw the line at a million. when he realized he didn't have a majority of the republicans, he didn't go forward. what this is now is an old school where you have a bipartisan society, where boehner would be asked to permit a vote, even if he knew most republicans would vote no. it's humiliating for a speaker, especially in this milieu, in the world we live in now. it would set up boehner to maybe lose the speakership when the vote is taken in the house for that on january 3rd. it would cer

for our storminess later on today. most of this action, the storm's energy understanding will stay to the west. as it stays to the west, it will push the warmer air in the washington area. we are not talking about a major storm system. this particular storm doesn't have any real moisture to tap into. so, precipitation totals should be fairly light. we will be cloudy. by 1:00, 2:00 today we will see showers move in. at the onset, particularly west and north of the city, you saw those cold temperatures early this morning, you will be slow to warm up. could you see a mix, a wintry mix of a few snowflakes and sleet out there as the whole system moves through. be ready for that possibility. we are not expecting travel difficulties today. this will be a quick mover. it should be out of here by early evening. cloudy skies, a little sleet changing to showers. winds north and west. a cool afternoon. early showers then becoming cold overnight as we clear out. the active seven-day forecast. christmas day looks fantastic. mid- to upper-40s with sunshine. wednesday we cloud up again. better cha
